Eschweiler Hauptbahnhof

Eschweiler Hauptbahnhof is the train station for Eschweiler in the German state of North Rhine Westphalen. It is on the Cologne–Aachen high-speed line. Regional services stop at the station every half hour in both directions but this intercity train simply whooshed by. This station has been added to the heritage list and played an important part during the expansion of the coal mining industry. In 1800s, the Eschweiler population exploded. Today it is much quieter and the mines from them have now been covered by newer forests.

You were really able to capture the motion of the train! Well done.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Emily.

ICE in a hurry!
Ayush Basu: "Miles to go before I sleep" and all, Ray.
Ice has a nice modern shape Ayush!
Ayush Basu: It certainly looks sleek. And this train model has been selling quite well over the past decade or so, Richard. It is built by Simens-Bombardier.
You just managed to catch this one!! Nice, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Oh yes, this train does not have a designated halt at Eschweiler so it was just passing by, Elizabeth.

I have travelled on these, they are wonderful
Ayush Basu: So did I and I agree with you whole heartedly, Chris. I think I had a bit of a silly grin throughout the ride.
The railways system in Germany is superb Ayush, and these ICE trains are very comfortable.
Ayush Basu: I agree with you wholeheartedly, Chad. I had a meal in their onboard pantry and it was a memorable experience too.
Well done with the motion.
Ayush Basu: You are very kind, Mary.

I wonder what this view would look like in time lapse.
Ayush Basu: Good thought, Louis. I think the camera would need to shoot at a very high frequency, probably at the top of its game.
I once travelled on one of these from Cologne to Brussels, they really speed along don't they.
Ayush Basu: I agree with you, Brian. I took one from Frankfurt to Cologne and it was a smooth and scenic ride.
I imagine it whooshed by at quite a speed!
Ayush Basu: Yes, Tom. This train does not have a designated halt at Eschweiler.
That train is just built for speed Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Oh yes Bill, they touch 300kmph on some sections, I understand.
There is no steam coming out of it, so it's not a proper train, Ayush, though you captured it well...smile
Ayush Basu: And no whistle too, come to think of it. Thank you, Frank.

The whooshing train makes the two people on the platform look so small and vulnerable.
Ayush Basu: You are right about that, CP. Thank you for that observation.

On se rend bien compte de la vitesse.
Ayush Basu: Il est un bon équipement à  la recherche
It is a handsome train, to my eyes, Martine.
We need these over here, Ayush...
Ayush Basu: I think we all need some of these, Larry. But they are quite investment-heavy, I am told.

Great timing here.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Astrid. I had some time to kill here and all of a sudden, comes this whoosh. I did have my camera handy though.
